I sat down this morning to complete the blog post I’d started for today–and received a call that The Welcome Committee of Butternut Creek is a RITA finalist. For those of you who aren’t members of Romance Writers of America, the RITA is an award for the best books for 2012. It’s a wonderful honor that I’ve dreamed about getting for years and years and years as has every romance writer. That call completely blew my plans for the morning. I’ll have something up Friday when I can regain my poise and settle down in a chair.
